Poached Egg with Avocado Egg Salad

Who says a healthy breakfast has to be complicated?  This took about 10 minutes to make and tastes amazing.  The only thing you need to have ready ahead of time is the hard boiled egg, which is something that you should already have in your fridge for quick, healthy snacking! ;)  

Yields 1 serving, as pictured.

1/4 avocado
1 large egg, hard boiled
1 large egg, poached
1 slice 5-grain toast
1/4 cup alfalfa sprouts
To poach egg:
Bring water to a light boil in a small skillet.  The amount of water depends on the size of the pan.  You will need enough water to cover the egg entirely.  Crack egg into a small bowl.  When the water is at a slight boil, turn down the heat to medium.  Slide the egg into the water and let it sit for 3-4 minutes.  Gently lift the egg from the bottom and push around in the water.  Let cook for another 2-5 minutes depending on how well you want the egg cooked.  Take the egg out of the water and let it rest on a paper towel for 5-10 seconds (to absorb the water), but careful not to leave it too long or it will stick. 

Mash avocado and egg together with a fork.  Toast piece of bread (or if you are like me and without a toaster, you can broil the toast with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil on it). 
Spread the avocado mix over the toast, top with sprouts and poached egg, and enjoy!
